Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Palāyita (पलायित) refers to “having defeated” (former attachments), according to the Yogatārāvalī.—Accordingly, [while describing yoganidrā]: “[This] extraordinary sleep [which is] without dullness and void of thought [that is the world of] multiplicity, becomes manifest for people when [all their] former attachments have been defeated (palāyita) by the superiority of [their] inward awareness. [...]”.
Yoga is originally considered a branch of Hindu philosophy (astika), but both ancient and modern Yoga combine the physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga teaches various physical techniques also known as āsanas (postures), used for various purposes (eg., meditation, contemplation, relaxation).
Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Palāyita (पलायित) refers to “having fled” (the battle, after defeat), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.10 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Kumāra (Kārttikeya) fought with Tāraka-Asura: “[...] Some of the Asuras shrieking ‘O save O save’ with palms joined in reverence sought refuge in Kumāra. Numberless Asuras were killed. Many fled (palāyita). The fleeing Asuras were beaten and harassed by the gods and the Gaṇas. Thousands of them fled to Pātāla for their life. Those who tried to flee were disappointed and put to distress. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
